Mrs. Catherine Longworth Anderson
THE death of Mrs. Catherine Longworth Anderson last week causes mourning in a large circle in Cincinnati. She was a woman of unusual force of character and though she cared little for ordinary gayety, she was a power both in church and society, and wielded an influence through her sons and their wives which was most remarkable. She lived in some retirement after the death of her husband, and devoted herself to the management of her large estates and her numerous family interests. The daughter of Nicholas Longworth, one of the founders of Cincinnati, she married in 1834 Larz Anderson, a brother of Col. Robert Anderson. the hero of Fort Sumter, and a son of Col. Richard Clough Anderson, of Revolutionary fame. The mother of ten sons, all of whom have married into prominent Cincinnati families, she naturally had a very extensive connection, and the Anderson family form quite a little social coterie of their own., Mrs. Anderson died at Hot Springs, Virginia where she had been taken some weeks ago in the hope that she might be benefited by change of air and scene. The eldest and best known of her sons, Col. Nicholas Longworth Anderson, died in Europe some months ago; he had made his home in Washington the last few years, where he lived in some magnificence. He left one son,. Larz, now the attache of Legation in London.

C. P. Anderson
Camden Inklings - March 30 (1875): On last Thursday at 10 o'clock, Mr. C. P. Anderson of this vicinity, died of erysipelas, after an illness of 12 days. The burial took place next day at 1 o'clock, which was very largely attended notwithstanding the roads were in a terrible condition. Funeral will be preached at some future time.
The deceased leaves three grownup children; one daughter and two sons - one of whom is absent in Texas - who in this their sore affliction, have the heart felt sympathy of the entire community.
Mr. Anderson was born in Hamilton County, Ohio, on the 25th day of March, 1820, consequently he lacked but one day of having lived 55 years.
He moved to this county in the year 1839, and lived the first three years in Rushville, thence he moved to this neighborhood, where he lived until his death.
On the 14th of June, 1843, he was married to Miss Lucinda Cady, who died September 16, 1867.
For the last nine years he was one of the leading members of the Christian Church of this place, holding the office of Elder from its organization. In his death his children suffer the irreparable loss of a kind and indulgent father, the church loses one of its best and most useful members, and his place in the community will be hard to fill.

Ida Longworth Anderson
Died Oct 24, 1897
All that was mortal of Ida Longworth Anderson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wax. P Anderson, was laid to rest Thursday in beautiful Spring Grove, beside the soldiers and statesmen, noble-hearted men and gracious women gone before and with whom she claims kinship. The services, conducted by Rev. Baker, of St. Paul's and the assistant rector of Christ Church, were highly impressive. The snowy casket was a bank of bloom, and on mantels and cabinets in tall vases bloomed flowers she loved - hundreds of American beauties, valley lilies, and snowy roses, recalling sorrowfully the music, flowers and joy which greeted the fair girl's entrance into the world of pleasure only a year ago. A brief pause upon the threshold and now she has entered that other "celestial life." The grave was lined with ferns and roses, and there w no hint of earth to earth, but only of bloom and beauty - at resurrection and the life. Unselfish and unworldly, hers was a nature that naturally turned heavenward. The desolation of her family can only be measured by the high hopes for long years of happiness and joy that centered in her young life. But, Alas!
"Death lies on her like an untimely frost, Upon the sweetest flower of all the field."
